Chicago, Oct. 13th, 1890. 

To the Mayor and Aldermen of the 
City of Chicago, in Council Asseinbl&:I : 

Your Committee on Judiciary, to wiiom 
was referred resolution requiring all fran- 
chises granting rights over streets, etc., 
to be given to highest bidder, having had 
the same under advisement, beg leave to 
report and recommend that the same be 
placed on file and the accompanying reso- 
lution be passed in lieu thereof. 

Thomas McExeexy, 

Chairman. 

To the Mayor and, Aldermen of the City 
of Chicago in Council Assembled: 

Your Committee on Judiciary, to whom 
was referred a resolution introduced by 
Aid. Brookman, in regard to regulating 
the method of granting franchises, involv- 
ing the use in any manner of streets and 
alleys in this city, respectfully recommend 
to your honorable body, that the said reso- 
lution be placed on file. 

In making this recommendation your 
Committee on Judiciary desire to express 
their entire and hearty concurrence with 
the spirit of this resolution. The princi- 
ple, that special franchises granting rights 
in connection with the use of the public 
streets, over which the municipality has 
control, should only be conferred upon 
conditions that will yield a proportionate 
revenue to the city is a sound one, and can- 
not be too strongly endorsed. 

In the opinion of this committee in all 
grants of such privileges to be made here- 
after, this rule should be kept in view and 
enforced. 

The creation of a substantial revenue to 
the city from the grant of such privileges 
is not a new experiment. Both in this 
country and in Europe it has been in vogue 
for a long time. It is based on justice, as 
the parties in whose favor such privileges

riHW. 



are granted receive in tlieir traiichises val- 
uable property, for \vliieli they should not 
hesitate to ]y<iy. 

Your comuiittee are of opinion that the 
.custom which lias heretofore obtained in 
tliiseity,by which such franchises were 
uranted without adeiiuate consideration for 
ifhe same to the city should l)e abandoned, 
ami that in all future grants this Council, 
besides guarding the other rights of the 
public, shall make such ])rovisions as will, 
secure to the city a reasonable share of the 
profits made out of such franchises. 

The reason why this Committee recom- 
mends that the resolution in ({uestion be 
l)laced on tile is that your Committee does 
not believe that the details as to the grant- 
ing of franchises, as mapped out in this 
res^olution, can be carried out in every case 
or even in the majority of cases, where 
such franchises are s<mght; and we deem 
it preferable to have each grant considered 
on its own merits and dealt with in such 
manner as seems most ai)propriate under 
the circumstances. 

Your Committee recommend in lieu of 
this resolution the passage of the follow- 
ing, which has been accejUed by the mover 
of the resolution. Alderman Brookman, 
who has given his valuable services to this 
Committee in its deliberations on this mat- 
ter, as embodying the gist of his resolutixm. 

Resolved, That the streets and alleys of 
this city are the property of the citizens, 
held in trust for their use by the municipal 
authorities, and that any right, franchise 
or privilege, which involves a special use 
of such streets and alleys or the space un- 
der or over the same, should be coui)led 
with provisions for a fair and equitable 
compensation for such use. 

Besnlvcd furtlier, That no franchise shall 
hereafter be granted by this Council in- 
volving buch use of streets and alleys, un- 
less the ordinance granting such franchise 
shall contain such provisions as will secure 
to the city a reasonable share of the prolits 
to be made out of such franchise, as well 
as provisions for an adjustment of such 
share from time to time, to conform with 
the increase of sucli profits.

KEPORTS OF CITY OFFICERS. 

His Honor the Mayor submitted the fol- 
lowing communication: 

City of Chicago, 
Office of the Mayor, 
Chicago. Oct. 20th, 1890. 

To the Honorable the City Council: 

Gentlemen— Chicago has entered upon 
the second half century of her existence as 
a city and is now nearing the close of the 
first three years of that period. 

During the last twenty years the material 
growth and commercial progress of our 
city make her the marvel of moaern times, 
notwithstanding she stands to-day but a 
stalwart youth, destined however, before the 
close of a full century, to become the met- 
ropolitan giant of the western world. 

The next three years will probably be the 
most important and exacting era in the his- 
tory of our city, because within that period 
we must prepare for an exhibition of the 
arts, sciences and industries of the world 
and the reception m our midst of the peo- 
ples of all nations. 

Chicago as a city should in itself be an 



October 20, J 



934 



[189C. 



exhibit worthy of her reputation and 
worthy of the great event of 1893. 

The extraordinary conditions that con- 
front us as well as the ordinary demands 
necessary to fairly meet the rapid increase 
in population and the vast expansion of 
commercial and manufacturing industries 
—within our municipal limits— appeal to 
the public spirit and local pride of our citi- 
zens and the co-operation of the State Leg- 
islature and this honorable body with a 
force that will enable the authorities to 
meet the ordinary demands of this great 
and growing city, and also meet the just 
expectations of our own country and those 
of the people from abroad. 

To promote material progress and 
achieve success in the ftiture. we should 
establish a suitable and substantial basis. 

Chicago's public works should be de- 
signed and constructed not only to meet 
temporary wants, but in such manner and 
of such character and magnitude, that they 
will be of utility to future generations. 

In a word Chicago should lead in all 
great public improvements and thereby be- 
come a model in fact as well as in name 
for metropolitan utility, progress and 
greatness. 

The financial limitations and methods of 
twenty years ago, are not adapted to the 
present time. The city's limited resources 
are not coniniPiUsurate with the present 
ordinary necessities and requirements. 

Ther.^fore, how to properly meet the ex- 
traordinary demands of the near future 
without important and adequate amend- 
ments to the city's charter, is a grave ques- 
tion. 

Permit me to enlist the thoughtful con- 
sideration of this honorable body to sev- 
eral important measures that would add 
laurels to Chicago: 

1. To avoid the almost daily tearing up 
of our principal streets, the roadways 
should be formed into sub-ways by excavat- 
ing from curb to curb, in which should be 
placed all the city's work and the balance 
of space rented to any corporation entitled 
to use the same. 

2. The city should provide a system of 
public heating, public electric or g"as light- 
ing, both for street and house service, and 
and also a system of pneumatic tubes for 
mail and other service, and possibly under- 
ground ducts for smoke. 

3. ^Nlore small parks are needed in differ- 
ent parts of the city, and public bathing 
houses should be established to meet a san- 
itary want. 

4. The swing bridges over at least a por- 
tion of the river should be abolished. 

5. The tracks of all steam railways with- 
i n the city limits should be raised, and 

wherever practicable suitable sub-ways of 



masonry should be constructed instead o 
iron or steel viaducts. 

6. The principal business thoroughfares 
and alleys should be thoroughly cleaned 
daily, and all other improved streets should 
be cleaned at least tri-weekly. 

7. Daily service in the collection of garb- 
age and other like debris, is imperatively 
demanded. The final disposal of garbage 
is a question that demands present and 
careful consideration. 

8. Sprinkling and cleaning streets by 
special assessment, would greatly promote 
the cleanliness of our high-ways. 

9. All obstructions over and along the 
side-walks and beyond the building line of 
a more or less permanent character, should 
be removed on*or before May 1st, 1892. 

10. The methods governing the financial 
department of the city needs some changes. 

11. The police force and fire department 
need an increase in men and in apparatus. 

There are many other measures that 
might be profitably considered by this 
honorable body, but those touched upon, 
while not new or novel are none the less 
pressing. 

We are aware that radical changes w^ould 
require many years of time and immense 
sums of money, but by the aid of the State 
legislature and the concurrence of the City 
Council some of the more pressing improve- 
ments might be inaugurated within the 
next generation. This would be an assur- 
ance of ultimate completion and be a 
powerful inducement, to the people from 
everywhere to come and fill up the 170 
square miles of our city. The main drain- 
age of the city is provided for, but the 
extension of the sewer system is of vital 
importance to the health of Chicago. 

Gentlemen, I submit these hints for your 
careful and deliberate consideration, and 
in order to take the initial step towards so 
desirable an end, 1 recommend that a com- 
mission be appointed, charged with the 
duty of formulating and recommending to 
the State Legislature suitable and necessary 
amendments to our city's charter and mu- 
nicipal code, so we can at least meet the 
exigencies and requirements growing out 
of the proposed World's Exposition in this 
city. 

Kespectfully submitted,

The Board of Examiners for licensing en- 
gineers submitted a communication recom- 
mending certain amendments to an ordi-

charge of steam boilers and steam ma- 
chinery in the City of Chicago." 

Aid. Cullerton moved that the same be 
published and referred to the Committee 
on Judiciary. 

The motion prevailed. 

The following is the communication: 

To the Honor ahle. the Mayor and City 
Council of the City of Chicago : 

Gentlemen— The Board of Examiners 
appointed pursuant to the ordinance en- 
titled "An ordinance for the examination 
and licensing engineers in charge of steam 
boilers and steam machinery in the City of 
Chicago," respectfully represent that un- 
der the ordinance which reads " the said 
board, or a majority thereof, shall hold 
stated sessions once each week, of such du- 
ration as may be deemed requisite, between 
the hours of 9 A. M. and 5 P. M.,' for the 
purpose of examining and determining the 
qualifications of applicants for license for 
engineers." They have been able to ex- 
amine an average of 127 applicants per 
month, or at the rate of 1504 per year, and 
in view of this fact that there are probably 
from 4,000 to 5,000 men in charge of steam 
plants in the City of Chicago, ail of whom 
should be examined for license; therefore, 
we the said Board of Examiners respect- 
fully recommend that Section 2 of said 
ordinance be amended by striking out all 
below line eight of said section and substi- 
tuting the following: 

Said board may hold sessions (day or 
evening) as often as may be deemed neces- 
sary for the purpose of examining appli- 
cants for licenses for engineers, and in 
order to expedite the business of the office, 
the Secretary may be allowed to examine 
applicants in the absence of the other mem- 
bers of the board by taking a stenographic 
report of the examination and submitting 
it to the other members of the board, and a 
full stenographic record shall be made and 
kept on file of the examination of every re- 
jected applicant. 

It is further recommended that Section 



13 be amended so as to increase the sal- 
aries of the board proportionately to the 
additional labor involved by the above al- 
teration.

DEATH OF EX-ALD. W. P. WIIEEAX. 

Alderman Dixon (1st ward.) 

Mr President: It is my painful duty 
to announce to the council the suddeii 
death of my late colleague, William 1 . 
Whelan. It is sad to be assembled to pay 
the last tribute of respect to the memory of 
our departed associate. The suddenness ot 
this sad event makes it the more painful. It 
is a true saying that "in life we are m the 
midst of death."' Cut down m the very 
prime ot life, vigor and manhocxl, without 
a moment's warning, by the hand of a cold 
blooded assassin. I have known the de- 
ceased for over twenty years. I have 
known him as mv colleague in this council, 
sitting by mv side, for over six years, 
where he treated me and all others with re- 
spect and courtesy, and I have esteemed 
him as a generous, kind-liearted friend to 
those in need. 1 have know^n him, to honor 
and respect him for his manly worth. He 
was as true to a friend as steel, and when 
he gave his word to do anything you could 
rest assured that that thing would be done. 



October::;, J 

Mr. President, mv late colleague and 1 
differed widely on many occasions on 
measures before the council: it was a manlv 
difference, and t)n many occasions I have 
known him when he advocated a measure 
and I 0]. posed it. if 1 happened to be ab- 
sent when the matter came u]» for tinal 
action, he would move tliat it be laid over, 
as he did not desire to take anv advantage of 
a colleague, which is sufficient to show this 
body what kind of a manly oi)ponent he 
was. His oon.stituents loved him. as was 
demonstrated by his re-election to thisbodv 
for over six years, and no man can be 
elected in this free land of ours except 
there is merit in him and that merit was 
seen and appreciated in his career. It is sad 
gentlemen, to think of that voung and 
devoted wife and child weeping over his 
lifeless form to-night. He is dead: we will 
see his face no more. It is fitting and 
proper that tl.is couueil make the necessarv 
arrangements for his funeral and I hope 
this council will go in a body to that funeral 
and that every mark of respect which is 
due to his memory be paid him. I offer the 
following resolutions and move the adop- 
tion of the same: 

Whereas. This Council has learned 
with deep regret and sorrow of the sudden 
death of ex-Ald. William P. Whelan. wiio 
represented the First ward in this bodv for 
several terms, and who during that 'time 
discharged his dutv to his constituents, as 
Avell as to the City of Chicago, with zeal, 
tideiity and ability: and 

AVheuea>, In his death the eitv has lost 
an enter])rising and energetic citizen, and 
his friends a warm, tnie-heaited man whose 
geniality of temperament was proverbial, 
making of him the most companionable of 
men: a man ever striving to advance the 
growth and prosperity of the city of his 
birth and life long residence: therefore be 
it 

Resolved. That we desire to place on 
record the testimony of our respect for the 
deceased and we hereby tender to his 
afflicted family and friends our sincere and 
heartfelt sympathv in their sad bereave- 
ment; 

Resolved. That this Council attend the 
funeral in a body. 

Resolved. That the City Clerk be directed 
to transmit a copy of this preamble and 
resolution, properly engrossed, to the familv 
of the deceased, and to spread the same 
upon the records of this Council. 

The Chair— Gentlemen, is there anv 
other member of the Council who desires 
to speak in regard to these resolutions. If 
there be any <rentleman present who de- 
sires to speak he will be heard. 

Aid. Cullerton: 

Mr. Chaikmax am> (ii;xTi.E.MEX of 
THE Corxcii.— Born in Chicairo like mv- 
self, raised among its earliest scenes aiid 
history, and having been a warm, true 
and personal friend of mine, 1 keenlv feel 



ii»2 [1890. 

the sad and untimely death of William P. 
Whelan. Having listened to the testimony 
at the Coroner's inquest concerning the 
death of my old-time friend, I am unable 
to proceed. 1 cannot say more on the sub- 
ject now. 

Aid. Cremer: 

I arise, Mr. Chairman, to offer my trib- 
ute of respect to the memory of my prede- 
cessor and friend. It occurs to me that this 
occasion, without some expression of re- 
gret and sorrow on the part of those who 
have been so long associated with him in 
this chamber, as well as those who have 
not had that pleasure. 

The many estimable (jualities of our dead 
friend endeared him to all his associates as 
well as to the large circle of friends and as- 
sociates to whom he was known outside 
this Council. He, to my knowledge, was 
always faithful and efficient in every posi- 
tion in which he was placed. I have known 
him a great many years, almost since 1 was 
a boy. and it is but a few months ago when 
the citizens of this ward asked me to take 
the nomination for Alderman that I went 
to him Jand asked him to advise me as to 
what course to pursue. He gave me his 
good wishes and told me he hoped I would 
succeed and be a success in this body. I 
little thought then that one of the first of- 
ficial duties I would have to perform would 
be to listen to the announcement of my 
friend's death and join in the public eulogv 
of his memory. On an occasion of this kind 
our lips are sealed and language fails to ex- 
press the emotions within. In common 
with you all, and in common with all who 
knew him, I feel great sadness at his un- 
timely end. •• Death hath placed his hand 
upon my friend, and. lolhe hath departed."' 

I know also that the city of Chicago has 
occasion to grieve over the death of a loval, 
efficient and fearless son and citizen. 

Aid. Mc.\bee: 

Mr. Pre?idext axd Gextlemex of 
THE CorxciL— Those who have spoken 
before me in such high terms of our de- 
ceased friend have left "but little for me to 
add. I can hardly find words to express 
my feeling in regard to the death of him 
\yhose life and character has been so fit- 
tingly and eloquently eulogized. From an 
ac«iuaintance of six vears— a short periocl 
of time no doubt— I had learned to esteem 
him for his good, kind heart, a good, staunch 
friend in time of trouble. He has been ever 
known to befriend those who were in 
trouble, while he was genial, friendlv and 
cheerful toward all who came in his wav 
in the daily walks of life. I have done 
business with him for over six vears. and 
found him in every respect upriiiht and 
honest in all his business relations. 1 never 
had occasion to dismite or even differ with 
him in any respect, and I have had consid- 
erable business transactions with him in 
the course of those six vears. I have seen 
many in distress and suffering hold out 
their hands to our deceased friend for suc- 
cor, and never hav^ I seen him fail to re-

spoiul to the call of charity at any time. 
lie was nexev known to refuse a call tor 
assistance, not alone from his associates 
and friends, to whom lie was always the 
same kind and good-hearted fellow, but to 
strangers and those whom he never sa^^s', 
but who made the appeal in the name of 
our common humanity. In view of all 
these estimable qualities, it is, gentlemen 
of the Council, a very heartrending thing 
to contemplate, not alone the manner of 
his death, but also the bereavement and 
sorrow and irreparable loss to the family, 
the loving and faithful wife and the child 
but a few months old; a child whose way 
through life and whose battle with the 
world will have to be made without the 
guiding and he'pfiil hand of a father. His 
household, his home life, his family con- 
nections and domestic relations were of the 
most excellent and loveable character. 
Having but once had the pleasure of visit- 
ing him at his home, 1 cannot, perhaps, do 
asmuch justice to this phase of his life as 
those who have known him more intimate- 
ly, but even on that single occasion I saw 
enough to acquaint me with the excellent 
character of the fine, dutiful wife, the sweet 
little baby, the happy home life of the little 
family that must now plough its way 
through the world without his strong hand 
and kindly face to cheer them on the way. 
Mr. President, I am most heartily in ac- 
cord with the spirit of the resolutions just 
presented to this Council. 

The resolutions were then unanimously 
adopted by the Council upon a rising vote.

REPORTS OF CITY OFFICERS. 

His Honor the Mayor submitted the fol- 
lowing veto message: 

To the Honorable the City Council : 

Gentlemen— I have carefully consid- 
ered the ordinance passed by this honora- 



ble body on the 23d inst., authorizing the 
Lake Street Elevated Kailroad Company to 
build, construct, and maintain an elevated 
structure on Lake street, from the east line 
of Fifth avenue, thence west to the east 
line of Robinson avenue. 

On the 28th of December, 1888, an ordi- 
nance was passed by the City Council on 
the petition of the property owners, as re- 
quired by law, granting said company the 
authority to construct, maintain and oper- 
ate an elevated railroad on Lake street, 
commencing at the west side of Canal 
street and running thence west to the then 
city limits. By authority of said ordinance, 
and in accordance with its provisions, a 
considerable portion of the said elevated 
structure has been built. The petition up- 
on which the ordinance Of 1888 was granted 
provided for a special system of construc- 
tion; subsequently, however, the property 
owners along the same route and with- 
in the same limits petitioned for such 
change of structure as might be approved 
by your honorable body, the object being, 
it is presumed, to permit a more desirable 
system of road than that specified in the 
original petition. There are no objections, 
to urge against the change contemplated; 
on the contrary such change, in my opin- 



Octobers',]

[1890. 



ion, would be in the interest of the patrons | 
of the road as well as the company. 

I desire to say at this time that I recog- 
nize the necessity, convenience and, there- 
fore, the value' to our citizens of rapid | 
transit through our city, and have been 
and am now heartily in favor of the ele- I 
vated railways, properly constructed and i 
operated, as the best means at present to i 
meet the demand of rapid intramural trav- \ 
el. Therefore nothing but a sense of offic- j 
ial duty could induoe me to interpose any j 
obiection to the ordinance passed on the 
23d inst. 

While tlie proportions, strength and 
adaptability of the structural appointments 
of an elevated railway an- important mat- 
ters to consider and pass upon, yet these 
are subordinate to. and in a large measure 
dependent upon, the legal and equitable 
foundation on which a work of the kind is 
based. In the latter the company seeking 
the privileges and the city granting the 
same are alike interested. 

The ordinance passed in 1888, on the pe- 
tition of pro})erry owners, designates the 
limits of the railway. 1 find nothing in 
the subse'-iut^nt petition asking for a change 
of system, that cimtemplates the east and 
west extension of the railway sought for in 
the present ordinance. It appears to me, 
therefore, that tJie original petition of 1888. 
having served its spec^tic purpose, the then 
• petitioners have received all they prayed 
for, and the signatures on said petitions 
should not in equity be permitted to serve, 
two years afterwards, as the lawful pre- 
requisite to the granting of a new ordinance 
effecting the rights and interests of proper- 
ty owners on the line of the proposed ex- 
tensions, who did not sign any petition for 
a railway along and in front of their prop- 
erty, bu't in the case of the eastern ex- 
tension, have almost unanimously signed 
and pre.sent^d to this Council a protest 
against such extension. 

The law requires the consent of a major- 
ity of the owners of the frontage in each 
mHe and fraction thereof of the street to be 
occupied by any railway. Neither the let- 
ter or spirit of the law upon this point war- 
rants the change of the mile limits fixed 
as a condition "for granting a i^rior ordi- 
nance to be change<i to meet the require- 
ments of a new ordinance. To do so would, 
it seems to me. challenge the correctness, if 
not the validity, of the certificate of mile- 
age and verification in the original papers. 
1 am, for these reasons, of the opinion that 
the ordinance parsed on the 23d inst. should 
be considered without any reference to any 
other ordinance heretofore passed for an 
elevated railway on. I.ake street. 

Guided by these views, we find the ordi- 
nance under consideration provides for an 
elevated railway fnmi Catial street east to 
Fifth avenue, not only without the consent 
of the property owners on the line of way, 
but in the face of a written protest of said 
owners. But even if this objection did not 

xist. the ordinance itself "is faulty, and 



lacking in a number of conditions, which I 
should prefer to present at this time in an 
amended ordinance for the consideration of 
this honorable body, were it practicable to 
do so. 

I may, however, call attention to a few 
important conditions, which seem proper: 

1. To grant privileges by ordinances for 
railways for over twenty years is, in my 
judgment, contrary to public policy. 

2. The last clause of Section 23 in the or- 
dinance completely nullifies the whole in- 
tent of the section.' 

3. The extension from Canal street to 
Fifth avenue involves the use of a viaduct 
over West Water street and a bridge over 
the river. These facts are in no wise recog- 
nized in the ordinance. 

The viaduct was erected about two (2 1 
years since, and cost over S39.000.00. 

It is used bv three corporations, viz. : the 
citv of Chicaoo. the West Division Street 
RaUway, and the Evanston Railway. 

If the Lake Street Elevated Railway 

• should use this structure it should pay for 

: the privilege at least an equivalent to the 

interest on one-fourth the actual cost and 

: annual maintenance of the structure. 

The river bridije at Lake street cost near- 
Iv SU2.000. 00— one-half this sum was paid 
bv the West Division Railway Company 
and one-half by the city of Chicago. 

The bridge was erected about six j-ears- 
i ago, and has been used by the two corpora- 
! tions only. 

If a third corporation should use this 
i laro-e steam bridge it seems but fair that it 
should pay annually therefor at least a sum 
i equal to the interest on one-third the origi- 
'i nal cost and contribute one-third the cost of 
; operating and maintaining in repair this 
' valuable" structure. These payments, to- 
gether with a reasonable mileage rate for 
! use of streets on proposed east and west ex- 
tensions, would reach an amount to be paid 
I into the' city treasury annually of about 
s7.500.00, wliich is not unjust in view of the 
I rights and privileges granted. 

These conditions are referred to on the 
basis of the extensions only, and do not at- 
tach in anv manner to the rights and priv- 
ileues granted in the 1888 ordinance, for a 
rai'lwaV from Canal street to Crawford ave- 
nue, if this last mentioned ordinance is to 
; be merged in the ordinance in question, 
providing for the extensions, then the sug- 
' gestion as to payment for viaduct, bridge 
'. and street mileage, should be embraced in 
; a provision for a percentage on the gross 
i revenue or earnings of the railway com- 
I pany— similar to that of the Chicago West 
i Division Rapid Transit Company. 

^ While I have given my views somewhat 
in detail, we are obliged to consider theor- 
j dinance passed on the 23d inst., as aninde- 
' l>endent grant for two new lines of elevated 
I raihvav,' and as such I have no other re-

course, than that of vetoing the measure as 
it stands, because even if amended as here- 
in proposed it would still be objectionable 
on the score of not having the frontage 
consent as provided by law. I therefore 
return the ordinance passed by this honor- 
able body on the 23d inst., authorizing the 
proposed extension of the Lake Street liail- 
way, without approval. 

De Witt C. Ckkgieh, 

Mayor. 

Aid. Dixon (1st ward) moved to recon- 
sider the vote by which the ordinance re- 
ferred to in the veto message was passed. 

The motion prevailed. 

Aid. Cullerton moved that the further 
consideration of the ordinance be temporar- 
ily postponed. 

The Chair ruled that the only motion in 
order at this time is the charter motion, 
viz.: "To pass the ordinance, the veto of 
Plis Honor the Mayor to the contrary not- 
Avithstanding," and decided the motion of 
Aid. Cullerton out of order.

ion of the Chair.

REPORTS OF CITY OFFICERS. 

His Honor the Mayor submitted the fol- 
lowing communication from John B. Drake, 
tendering to the city for public use an ice 
water drinking fountain: 

City of Chicago. 
Department of Finance, 
Chicago, October 27, 1890. 

To the Honorable the Mayor and City 
Council : 

Gentlemen:— It is my wish and design 
to present to the city, for the use of the 
public, an elaborate ice water drinking 
fountain and 1 respecttully ask that a site 
for the same be set apart with provision 
for its simple maintainance as to water, 
ice, etc. 

The fountain I propose offering for the 
use of the public will be constructed of 
polished granite, sixteen (16) feet square at 
the base and thirty (30) feet in length. 
The design includes a pedestal on the front 
upon which will be placed a bronze statue 
of Christopher €olumbus, to be seven feet 
in height. 

The statue will be the production of an 
American artist of distinguished reputa- 
tion. The fountain is to be provided with 
ten (10) faucets, supplied through pipes 
leading from an ice chamber beneath, thus 
providing for streams of ice cold water, ac- 
cessible to all. The estimated cost of the 



proposed fountain, including the statue, is 
fifteen thousand (115,000) dollars. " 

The work can be completed and the 
fountain made ready for public use m the 
summer of 1892 and so make it happily 
commemorative of the 400th anniversary of 
the discovery of America by Columbus. 

It has been suggested that the most suit- 
able site for the fountain and statue would 
be on the space in the open court between 
the city and county building on Washing- 
ton street. 

I would be glad to place the fountain 
there if the suggestion meets the concur- 
rence of the authorities of the city and 
county. 

The cost of maintenance for supply of 
water and ice would be comparatively tri- 
lling. 

Kespectfullj^, 

John B. Drake. 

Aid. Dixon (1st ward) moved that the 
tender made by John B. Drake, as set forth 
in the foregoing communication, be ac- 
cepted, and that the Commissioner of Pub- 
lic Works be authorized and directed to 
grant permission for the erection of the 
proposed fountain. 

The motion prevailed. 

His Honor, the Mayor, submitted his re- 
ports of releases from the House of Correc- 
tion for the weeks ending Oct. 25, 1890, and 
Nov. 1, 1890, which were 

Placed on file. 

The Commissioner of Public Works pre- 
sented a report by what authority certain 
railroad companies have laid various tracks 
and switch tracks across Lincoln street, 
Robey street, Hoyne avenue, Leavitt street 
and Oakley avenue. 

Aid. McEnerny moved that the same be 
returned to the ' Commissioner of Public 
Worhs for a full report. 

The motion prevailed. 

ALSO, 

A report of the condition of the old wood- 
en bridge at Thirty-fifth street, which was 
ordered published and placed on file. 

The following is the report: 

City of Chicago, 
Dep't of Public Works, 
Chicago, October 27,1890. 

To the Honorable, the Mayor, and City 
Council of Chicago: 

Gentlemen — An inspection by the 
City Engineer of the condition 
of the old wooden bridge at Thirty-fifth 
street has developed the fact that the tim- 
bers in the center pier and the bridge are 
so badly decayed that they are he\ ond the 
possibility of npair, and the bridge is in 



November 7,]

[1K90. 



an unsafe condition and should be replaced 
by a new structure. 

The change should be made as soon as 
possible, as the crossing is an important 
one, and a suspension of travel in conse- 
(luence of a defective bridge would greatly 
discommode public travel. The amount re- 
quired to complete such structure, as esti- 
mated by the Acting City Engirieer, is as 
follows: 

Superstructure— Howe Truss .'$12,200.00

has been opened into Sixtieth street, which 
was 

Ordered published and placed on file. 
The following is the report: 

City of Chicago, ) 

Dep't of Public Works, V 

November 3, 1890. ) 

To the HonornhJe. tlie Mayor and City 
Council of Chicago: 

On the 5th of October 1890. your honor- 
able body passed the following: 

'■'•Ordered, That the Corporation Counsel 
together with the Commissioner of Public 
Works be and they are hereby directed to 
report at the next regular meeting of the 
City Council whether or not Wharton ave- 
nue has been regularly opened into Sixtieth 
street according to law, and also by what 
authority the South Park Commissioners 
prevent or prohibit the public from enter- 
ing Sixtieth street from Wharton avenue." 

In compliance with such order I submit 
herewith a communication and an o])inion 
from the Law Department concerning the 
right of the South Park Commissioners to 
use the thirty-three foot strip situated on 
the south side of Sixtieth street as a grass 
plat and to prevent the public use of said 
strip as an opening to Wharton avenue, as 
shown on the accompanying plat. 

Yours respectfully, 

W. H. PURDY, 

Commissioner of Public Works. 

Department of Laav, ) 
Chica(H), November 1. 1890. ^ 

Dear Sir— In reply to the incpiiry as to 
whether Wharton avenue has been ''legally 
opened" and by what right the South Park 
Commissioners prevent the public from 
crossing a grass plat laid out on the scmtli 
side of Sixtieth street, at tlie head of Wiuir- 
ton avenue, I beg leave<to report that from 



an examination of the plats of Hyde Park 
1 find that on April 26. 1872, a plat of a sub- 
division of the south half, north half, 
south-west quarter Section fourteen (14), 
Township thirty-eight (38), North Piange 
fourteen ( 14), made and record ?d by (ieorge 
K. Clarke. Edward Martin, and lieuben P. 
Layton, that from said plat Wharton ave- 
nue appears as a street eighty (80) feet in 
width running north from Sixty-first street 
and extending into and connected with Six- 
tieth street, which is a strip thirty-three (33) 
feet in width, running east and west and is 
the northern boundary of said subdivision. 

I am informed that the South Park Com- 
missioners make no claim to the title to said 
thirty-three (33) feet strip, or Sixtieth 
street. 

I am of opinion from the information at 
hand that the said South Park Commis- 
sioners have no right to use any part of 
said thirty -three (33) feet strip as a grass 
plot, or to prohibit the public's ingress and 
egress to and from Sixtieth street and 
Wharton avenue. 

Attached hereto is a copy of the plat of 
said subdivision. 

Respectfully yours, 

F. E. Halligan, 

Special Assessment Attorney.

George Lendruinfor compensation for per- 
sonal injuries, which was

The following is the opinion : 

Law Depaf.tmext, Office of the ) 

Counsel to the Cokporatiox, J- 

Chicago, Xov. 17, 1890. ) 

Gextlemex— In obedience to the reso- 
lution of your honorable body, I herewith 
submit an opinion as to the right of the 
City Council to regulate fares and transfers 
on street railways within the limits of the 
City of Chicago. 

It is a well established doctrine that the 
Legislature has the right to regulate the 
rates of common carriers, such as railroad 
companies, and to exercise control over 
business of a public nature. 

In Ruggles vs. People, 91 111., 256. the 
Court says : " That it has been repeatedlv 
held by this court that corporations created 
within the State are amenable to the police 
power of the State to the same extent as 
are natural persons, but to no greater ex- 
tent. The Legislature may require of these 
bodies the performance of any and all 
acts which they are capable of perform- 
ing, that they may require of natural 
persons. Thp Legislature of this State 
has the power, under the constitution, 
to fix a maximum rate of charges by indi- 
^iduals as common carriers, warehouse- 
men, or others exercising a calling or busi- 
ness public in its character, or in which the 
public have an interest to be protected 
against extortion or oppression. And it 
has the same lawful power in respect to 
corporations exercising the same business, 
and such regulation does not impair the 
obligation of the contract in their charter.*' 

The decision in this case was afiirmed by 
the Supreme Court of the L'nited States in 

Ruggles, vs. People, 108 U. S., 526: 

And the same doctrine is laid down by 
the same court in 

Stone, vs. F. L. & T. Co., 106 L'. S., 307 : 

I. C. R. R. Co., vs. People, 108 U. S., 541: 



November 17,] 



1108 



11890 



Stone, vs! I. C. R. R. Co., 116 U. S., 347. 

Also in Granger decisions in the 94 U. S. 
many otlier cases be cited sustaining this 
proposition. 

Tlie doctrine, that the ])o\ver to fix the 
rates ot fare to be cliarged by common car- 
riers and individuals and corporations pur- 
suing bnsiness public in its nature, is 
lodged in the Legislative Department of 
the Government, is too well established to 
be seriously controverted. 

It is also a well established principle of 
law that the City Council has only such 
powers and rights as are delegated to it by 
the Legislature of the .State, and that the 
Legislature of the State has the power to 
give the City Council the right to control 
and regulate business of a public nature, 
such as the State has the right to control. 

The question then arises as to whether 
the Legislatnre of the State of Illinois has 
given the City of Chicago the right to reg- 
ulate fares (>f street railroad companies 
within the city. 

Subdivision 42, of Section 1, of Article 5, 
of the city charter provides " that the City 
Council shall have power to license, tax 
and regulate hackmen, draymen, omnibus 
drivers, cabmen, porters, expressmen, and 
all others pursuing a like occnpation. and 
to prescribe their compensation." Under 
this section the City of Chicago does license 
and tax and otherwise regulate the occupa- 
tions mentioned in said section. If the busi- 
ness of conducting a street railroad is a like 
occupation with those herein enumerated 
within the meaning of the law, then the 
City Council has the right to regulate such 
business, and to prescribe the compensa- 
tion of such companies; provided, of course, 
such regulation and such compensation so 
fixed by said City Council shall be reason- 
able and just. 

In Allerton vs. City of Chicago. 9 Bliss, 
552, which was a proceeding to determine 
whether the City of Chicago, under this 
section, had the right to fix a tax or license 
tee upon each street car operated by street 
railway companies. Judge Drummond de- 
cided " that street railway companies pur- 
sue a like occupation with hackmen, dray- 
men, omnibus drivers, cabmen and express- 
men, and are, therefore, within the provis- 
ions of the general law of 1872, for the in- 
corporation of cities and villages in this 
state." 

It is under this power that a tax is now 
collected on the street cars of many of the 
lines within the City of Chicago. 

The Supreme Court of Pennsylvania has 
also held that street railway companies are 
of a like nature with omnibuses, etc. 

While there has been no decision by the 
Supreme Court of this State upon this (pies- 
tion, yet whatever authority can be found 
seems to hold that street railroads are of a 
like character with omnibuses, etc. 

Unless the clause contained in the city . 



charter and all others pursuing like occu- 
pations includes street railroad companies, 
it is difficult to determine what it does in- 
clude. All are engaged in substantially 
the same business, all are peculiarly mat- 
ters which the city ought to have thepower 
to regulate, and, in my opinion, the court 
would hold that the oi)eration of a street 
railway is a like occupation to that of om- 
nibus, draymen, etc.. and that, therefore, 
its business and compensation are subject 
to the regulation of the City Ccmncil. 

It might be that the various ordinances 
granting street railroads the right to lay 
their tracks and fixing the rate of fare could 
deprive the City Council of any such power, 
but these ordinances seem to provide only 
for the maximum to be charged by the 
company, and it is by no means certain 
that even if they did provide for a certain 
rate of fare it would deprive other Councils 
from exercising control over said com- 
panies. 

I see no reason wdij- the Council cannot 
regulate, by ordinance, the fare charged by 
the street car companies. This nower, 1 
think, is conferred by the charter, and in- 
cludes the right to require transfers as has 
been provided by ordinance. The only 
limitation upon the power of the Council 
to fix the rate of fares to be charged is that 
the ordinance should be reasonable in its 
conditions and provisions. 

Respectfully submitted, 

.JOXAS IlUTCHIXSO>;, 

Cor}joratlon Counsel. 
To the IIonoral)le, the City Council of the 



City of Chicago. 



ALSO, 



All opinion concerning the erection of 
poles by the Thompson-Houston Electric

The following is the opinion :

Gentt.kmex-Tu the matter of the peti- 
tion of George F. Brown and others, prop-

the removalOf certain ]ioles erected by the 
Thompson-Houston Electric Company on 
Monroe avenue, south of i^ifty-third street, 
which was referred to this department for 
an opinion, I beg leave to report. 

On June 25, 1889. prior to annexation, 
the president and board of trustees of the 
Village of Hyde Park, passed an ordinance 
granting to the Thompson-Houston Elec- 
tric Company the right " To maintain one 
or more electric light works within the 
Village of Hyde Park, and to^erect, lay, re-

pair, maintain and use one or more systems 
of electrical conductors above or under- 
ground in the streets, alleys, places, parks 
and public grounds of said village, in con- 
nection therewith, for transmitting elec- 
tricity for the purpose of furnishing light, 
motive power or heat by means thereof, "and 
in pursuance of this ordinance the Commis- 
sioner of Public Works on June 13, 1890, 
issued a permit to the company authorizing 
the erection of poles, with the necessary 
apparatus and fixtures, on certain of the 
streets and alleys of the old Village of 
Hyde Park, including ]Monroe averue, 
from Fifty-third to Fifty-fifth streets. 

This ordinance being valid, and a permit 
having been regularly issued, I do not 
think the city has the power to cause the 
removal of any poles erected on Monroe 
avenue, from Fifty-third to Fifty-fifth 
streets, pursuant to "the permit. 

The petition is herewith returned. 

Kespectfully submitted, 

Morris St. P. Thomas, 

Asst. Corporation Counsel.

City of Chicago.
